The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey: Security Capital Investment Planning

ICF developed security capital investment strategic plans at the enterprise and line of business levels and facilitated the preparation of more than 40 individual security project business plans for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ). As part of this engagement, ICF supported the development and implementation of a rigorous, risk-based planning process and decision-support model to assist senior management to prioritize and optimize capital investments in security countermeasures across four line departments (port facilities; airports; mass transit; and tunnels, bridges, and terminals).

The effort built on the risk and needs assessment conducted by the client using the Terrorism Risk Assessment and Management (TRAM) methodology. ICF's approach integrates risk-reduction benefits, life cycle costs, project interdependencies, and other business considerations to guide long-term strategy for capital and operational investments based on TRAM risk-assessment information. This project directly supported key transportation infrastructure sectors and critical infrastructure within the NY-NJ area. The project included facilitation of executive-level stakeholders in key transportation subsectors.
